refers to a single Latin square with an even number of treatments, or a pair of Latin squares with an odd number of treatments. Each treatment occurs equally often in each position of the sequence (e.g., first, second, third, etc.) and in addition, each sequence of treatments (reading both forward and backward) also occurs equally often.
